Tejn (kunstner) - Wikipedia, den frie encyklopædi

Tejn (født 1976) er en dansk billedkunstner, hvis nærmere identitet er ukendt.[1]

Tejn begyndte sit kunstneriske arbejde som gadekunstner i 2008[2] og er siden, uden at have forladt sit oprindelige element, også rykket ind på gallerierne.[3] Tejn har blandt andet udstillet i Lunchmoney Gallery, Aarhus,[4], på kunstmessen Art Herning[5], til kunstmekkaet Galore[6]og på KØS, Museet for Kunst i Det Offentlige Rum.[7]

Tejns jernskulpturer skabes af metalskrot, som han svejser sammen i figurative sfærer, der udtrykker narrative fortolkningsmuligheder.[8] Hans værker er ofte politiske eller filosoferende unikaprodukter, [9] placeret på steder hvor de kommunikerer i samspil med lokalområdet,[10] som for eksempel hans billede af Christiansborg, sat op foran regeringsbygningen, med et "K3´er" stencileret henover, arbejderen der konstaterer, at "Det er de rige der har alle pengene", Guleroden der er flygtning fra grønthandleren, eller hans serie af meget forskellige "pæredanskere" på Nørrebro, som sætter fokus på, hvad det er at være dansk.[11] Mest kendt er Tejn for sit varemærke: "Lock On´s",[12][13] som er skulpturer, der typisk er svejset i jern og monteret i gadebilledet,[14][15]ofte med en gammel cykellås.[16] Blandt disse kan nævnes hans hilsen til Det Arabiske Forår, hvor slangebøssebevæbnede aktivister stopper en bemandet kampvogn.[17] Udover skulpturerne arbejder Tejn med installationskunst, grafik, stencil, frihåndstegning og paste up i gaderummet,[18] illustrationer,[19] og konceptkunst.[4][20]

Raw iron works compellingly well for Danish artist TEJN. His sculptures are made from recycled iron, which he roughly welds together creating objects within a figurative sphere. The sculptures appear powerful and unpolished. To the trained eye TEJNs work may refer to the grand Danish sculptor Robert Jacobsen, who was celebrated for working with raw iron in the ‘50s and ‘60s. TEJN wants to bring the iron media to a new and contemporary stage of artwork.

TEJN finds metal scrap for his sculptures and uses some of it in its original form. The rest is created into figurative objects that express a narrative deadopen for interpretation.

 

“When making my sculptures I try to see people as they are, and not only the trained version of how they want to be,” says TEJN in connection to explaining his drive for the figurative.

 

The underlying honest self that comes forward when people lose their facades inspires the artist. He appreciates how the loss of self-control develops a new transparent world, which he builds into his works.
